Why Is Kano State Governor Building Schools in Niger Republic?



On 17th January,2014, DAILY TRUST published a story titled ''Kwankwaso to Build Another School in Niger Republic''.

According to the report, last year, Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano state had spent over N1 billion on the building of the Kano-Niger Republic Bilingual College in Niamey. The schools are part of Kwankwaso's gesture to consolidate bilateral relationship between Nigeria and Niger Republic.

The new school will be an exclusively female bilingual college which is expected to compliment the male bilingual college in Niamey which was previously built by the Kano state governor.

Our question today is, "Why is Kano state Governor building schools in Niger Republic? , is it just about bilateral relations or something more?
